The visitor bike parking at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery is full of hire bikes, so this visitor has locked to a lamppost near the entrance.

An almost unreadable pair of route signs.

The visitor cycle parking at Kelvingrove Art Gallery now full of hire bikes.

Still no replacement bollards at the western end of the Kelvingrove Art Gallery grounds.

New planters, and the toucan crossing is now free from obstruction. However, the tiny 'No Entry' on the bollard on the right is incorrect because this is just the way you would pass to turn right into the Kelvingrove Art Gallery grounds.

Kelvingrove Park being used as a car park by drivers. This is meant to be a car-free zone!

A car-sized gap between the water-filled barriers and the sign-post. The barriers are no replacement for the four bollards that used to be here before COP26.

Still no reinstatement of bollards at any of the three locations that once had them at some stage previously. However, the sign advising of no vehicular access has been cleaned. (There is of course actually vehicular access for cycles.)

The last of the Nextbike bolt-down stands has succumbed to the inevitable, and now there are only the visitor parking stands left at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery.

A route sign (if you can read the small writing) pointing cyclists the wrong way along a one-way road, marked as 'No Entry'. The 'West City Way' emblem has its own separate post.

The planters have been moved and are now blocking the cycle lane on Kelvin Way, when they should be protecting it.

How fragile the motor traffic free status of Kelvin Way can seem.

Temporary barriers have returned to close off the Kelvingrove Art Gallery pedestrian and cycle access from use by drivers.

A driver reversing and turning, having seen the previous driver head down towards Argyle Street to find the way now blocked. See also #183413.

Nextbike cycle hire station on Clifton Street, and one hire bike in use exiting Kelvingrove Park.

The e-bike docking points at Kelvingrove Art Gallery have been taped up.

Still no reinstatement of bollards to stop drivers from using this pedestrian and cycle route as an access route to and from the Kelvingrove Art Gallery. The bollards were removed for the COP26 dinner.

The sign reads "No vehicular access to Argyle Street" but is covered in graffiti. A sign at Argyle Street suggests this is part of the West City Way council cycle route. A case where 'No Motor Vehicles' should be used, and the bollards rein ... [more]

With only one original cycle hire parking stand remaining, the hire bikes are taking over the visitor cycle parking at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery. See update at #185039.

A puddle on the West City Way in Kelvingrove Park.

A sign for the West City Way at Kelvingrove Art Galleries, with no further explanation. In the background, someone unlocking a hire bike.

New path in Kelvingrove Park, providing shortcut to NCN756, and passing playground.

Playground next to new cycle path in Kelvingrove Park, but people walking on the grass around barriers, and path itself largely regarded as part of play area.

New path with blind corner at end, in Kelvingrove Park.

New path (behind the hedge) in Kelvingrove Park, providing a shortcut to NCN756, although as yet not signed as such. Very popular with pedestrians, but the sign says it's a cycleway.
